Happy Clients

  • When my wife and I decided to move up to San Francisco, we knew the real estate market would be incredibly challenging. From our first conversation with Alex, we recognized that he understood what it took to find the right property and make a compelling bid. It was an arduous five-month process, but Alex never tired in his search for our perfect home. He maintained the right balance of enthusiasm and realism when it came to choosing our bids. I consider it a mark of his good instincts that we came within a hair’s breadth of winning several earlier bids that we ultimately lost, since it meant that we were making offers that were competitive without being foolishly high. Once we found the amazing home we’re now in, Alex worked tirelessly to help us put together a winning bid—it takes a lot more than just choosing the right number, by the way—and close on time, despite a string of unexpected complications and swerves along the way. We can’t recommend Alex highly enough!

  • Alex has changed the RealEstate World of San Francisco for ever. There is no turning back. His work is an asset for the buyers, for the sellers, for the local economy. When Realtors were just happy to pocket hefty commissions and ride the wave, he went the other way and listened to his convinctions and slowly created his masterpiece: a real change in that world. The only wave he's riding are the breakers in his surfer wet suit! the rest is hard work and commitment to his clients. His style is not for all, but if you are wired enough to check this recommendation, then you MUST at lest interveiw him should you need an agent. He'll amaze you.

  • Alex is a first class act all the way. He was able to navigate a very complicated sale and keep the deal alive on my terms even when it looked like the wheels would fall off. He even was able to get funds released inside of escrow enabling me to purchase a new home before my listing closed! I'm a client for life. -2169 Folsom M202

  • Our search for a home in San Francisco started after reading Alex’s site TheFrontSteps.com. We were impressed with his insight into the market and his interest in finding a property that fit our needs. Due to a job transfer, we had limited time to search for property and even less time to actually see what was available. Through many phone calls, text messages, and emails, Alex gave us a solid understanding of neighborhoods, prices, and how to make a competitive bid. It’s not everyday you trust a realtor enough to buy a home sight unseen, but Alex found us the perfect property! Alex listened to our needs and interests and found a home for us that we love, in a neighborhood that fits our lifestyle. And, did I mention that we did all this in less than 30 days? Thanks, Alex!
